Don't you dare call HL2:DM shit.
Yeah, don't you dare have a different opinion.
Pshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Half life 2 Deathmatch was never unbalanced, nor was it in Half life 1 where I pulled out my Laser cannon of death and spawn camped everyone, nor was it in HL2 DM where I camped all the spawns with toilets. Half life 2 Deathmatch was a master piece of balancement.
Do you call toilets overpowered death devices of doom?
I can't wait for HL3:DM.
do people still play hl2dm?
I loved... the official map based on the hl2 nova prospect level. With the bathroom. Although i never could find any amazing custom maps/
Sounds like we have some jealous HL2DM noobs in here...
The point is, I made it crative. I didn't just sprint around shooting everyone while spamming grenades like most people, I'd do a bunch of things to make it more fun.
gravity gun matches are so amazing
What more could you ask for?!
That, plus rocket matches
I need to get back into HL2:DM but I don't feel like it :O
My favorite is when Sv_Cheats are enabled and someone types into console host_timescale 0.1
Slow motion dodging toilets.
Best map was easily that one with the nuke. Play TDM with a good team and you can totally lock down the bunker and barricade it with props. Then you just launch down constant nukes of death
Oh god, there was that one glitch were you just kept ramming into the button spamming E for a whole fuckload of nukes causing the server to rage quit, one of my personal favorites.
Fuck, I must be thinking of that HL1 map then, I also remember in an early build you could also do that as well.
How does it compare to all these BS shooters now a days? No xp system i hope. Is it like css?
I know I'm gonna get beat on for this but whats up with the synergy website? I usually go there to see updates but it has apparently been suspended?
Yeah idk wuts up with synergy
Apparently it has been suspended for non-payment, I guess. Or it has expired.
Uhhh, guys?... Something strange happened to me last night. I don't know if every one has found this before and it's always been there and I haven't noticed it, but last night my friend was playing Portal 2 again on the PS3, and he got to the part where you first arrive at the underground section.
He found the sealed doors with the Cave Johnson recordings, but here's the thing; when he listened, every time it started you would hear Dr. Kleiner's line from HL2 of him saying; "D'ooooh, fiddle sticks. What now?"
...Am I the only one who's found this? Or am I just late as fuck?
EDIT: Guess I am late as fuck.
shame HL2:DM is pretty much dead now, i remember it back in its hayday. now there are like 3 populated servers and 2 are killbox maps
What's with killbox? I remember playing HL2:DM for the first time in ever and most servers had killbox on it.
I remember hearing it on Facepunch, actually. Someone was talking about how the world would end and then somebody mentioned bots would be in the servers killing each other for all eternity. I dunno but it was quite interesting
If valve does choose to make multiplayer, they should spend more time on it aka
a real coop mode. maybe something that has a ai director like in l4d.
or maybe a balanced competitive mode with different game modes, leaderboards, proper progression, more maps, etc.
if they had a separate team dedicated to multiplayer, it could be so much better. yeah hl2dm is fun, but you can't deny that it's halfassed.
In my experience HL2DM's simplicity always lead to player innovation. It's not like most games today where you are obligated to follow a specific set of gameplay rules. HL2DM doesn't have these rules, and because of that you can see servers where spamming toilets is the norm and servers where the key is roleplaying or completing objectives or what have you. Sure, it does lead to more bad servers, but the good servers are infinitely better. Though, I can't say what the situation is now; I haven't played the game in years.
